Find Stone Circles

A website has begun that catalogues stone circles and other megalith sites in Sweden. There are a lot of them and so far there are 1.5 million objects at 560 000 sites on the archive. Contributions to the data base can be made by anyone until the end of the year. When you find the record for an object or a site it includes map location in (listing for people, businesses and products) and in (more general search) as well as Google earth, providing latitude and longitude co coordinates. The search motor on the site is not easy to negotiate (you have to know the RAA - National Heritage Board for Sweden - number for the site). Searching for a name does not seem to be enough.
